My daddy took me outside to do my business and when I came in, he went back to sleep and left the bedroom door open. In my explorations around the house, tiptoeing around my sister and brother, I noticed a new smell. It was coming from the counter top above the dishwasher. I hadn't smelled anything quite like it before but thought I would check it out a little further. I'm so tall, it's easy to just hop up with a front leg onto the counter top to check these things out.
There was a pile of green things. Mom was outside yesterday and had brought them inside. Mom only puts good stuff up here so I figured these would be da' bomb.
I carefully pulled out the biggest one I could find. The outside was a little crunchy and tangy but the soft white insides and little seeds were really good. At first. Then my mouth started to hurt. Then I went to find mom to let her know she brought in something bad. I panted a bit and mom woke up. She took me downstairs and found the remains of the bad green thing I had eaten. I heard her make a wierd sound and then she got on the phone asking someone about lactose and milk for me. I found the water bowl and started lapping water up like my life depended on it! After all, it sure felt like it did.
Mom hung up the phone while I crawled up into the fetal position on the couch. She brought over a bowl with some milk for me to drink. It tasted really good. I started to feel better, too. The burning in my mouth went away. Ahhhh. I love mom.
